Our Stories

On display in our Print Studio Gallery-

Amir Khadar (They/Them) is an artist from Minneapolis who is of Sierra Leonean-American descent. They are a poet and a digital and fiber artist who uses afro-futurism, gender theory, and ancestral practices to evoke beauty in both what is and what might be.

 

The pieces on display here are loving and intimate depictions of Black and Brown bodies in relationship, community, landscapes, and solitude expressing deep connection to the earth, to the self, and to each other.

 

Originally commissioned by the Black Alliance for Just Immigration and Forward Together, this series is a powerful statement about the kind of world that queer visions make possible: one of wellness, healing, and safety embedded in a bright and serene natural world.
